Brodie Neil is the designer behind ReCoil's twisted appearance. The London-based designer used over three kilometers of timber to create the oval dining table. The wood used in the table's construction was harvested underwater from a lake in Tasmania.
Hydrowood is the primary material used for the ReCoil table. It comprises various types of wood recovered from Lake Pieman. The trees in question were submerged underwater in the 1980s for a hydroelectricity scheme. Tress such as huon pine, eucalyptus, Tasmanian oak, celery top pine, sassafras, myrtle, and blackwood were collected to create a mesmerizing pattern. The effect is a swirl of brown colors. Overall, the project took 60 hours of hand coiling the strips of wood into a unique piece of furniture.
